Review: Bepanthen Ointment (Nappy Rash)

During my pregnancy, I received a small tube of Bepanthen Ointment in a goodie bag. I tried a larger tube on Baby V since it is free from colourant, fragrance and preservative.

As Baby V is on cloth diapers, he only has minor rashes when poo is left on his diaper for too long. These are usually cleared up within a day by the ointment. As a precaution, I apply a thin layer of ointment on him at every diaper change.

It has worked well for him and does not affect the absorbency of his cloth diapers.


  • Prevents nappy rashes
  • Clears any rash relatively quickly
  • Cloth diaper-friendly


  • 50g tube is too big and messy; I prefer the 30g tube.
  • Leaves a greyish stain on his cloth diapers

  1. i also use bepanthen and love how it clears rashes so fast, but i still not sure to wear it since my daughter use cloth diaper. thank you for your review

    1. Ever since Vee poo-ed less frequently, I only apply a thin layer of Bepanthen at the first sign of any redness. If more is needed, I’d put a liner on the diaper. With these steps, all his diapers are fine and don’t need to be stripped wash. (Strip-washing was needed in the earlier months when he used Bepanthen at every diaper change.)

    1. In the past when I used Bepanthen (thin layer) without a diaper liner, I’d strip wash the diapers about every month. Nowadays, I only use diaper cream occasionally (e.g. for overnight) and lay a GroVia disposable diaper liner on the diaper. This way, I haven’t had to strip wash for very long, like 1-2 years. Hope this helps! 🙂
